3:00am
>> two minutes before the hour. let's look at the good, the bad, and the ugly. first the good. a dog rescued from the middle of a frozen harbor in chicago. that little dog ran out on ice after some geese as dogs typically do. but then he got stuck. rescuers spent three hours trying to coax him back onshore. he was taken to a vet and is doing just fine. next the bad. married women drink more. a new study finds women increased drinking afl they get married. it might be an attempt to match their husband's habits. finally the ugly. it wasn't the drill buzzing. apparently it was the dentist. dr. derelick of new york was accused of working on patients while he was drunk. it's time to brew on our question of the day. here are responses. earlier in the show we were asking you to weigh in on the remorse beyonce was lip syncing during the
3:01am
inauguration performance. do you think she was or do you care? >> scott in alabama said while it was a special time and historically one would not want to mess up so who cares. >> buzzby said yes. what a disgrace to fake the national anthem. >> steven says it don't matter. the performance was still great. thanks to everyone who responded and hope you had a terrific day. "fox & friends" starts now. >>gretchen: good morning everybody. today is wednesday. you made it to the middle of the week. it is january 23, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. hope you have a fantastic day. she is going to break her silence. hillary clinton's controversial -- well, could it be addressed today? her controversy in front of congress. what she knew before and after the benghazi terror attacks. plus where are the survivors and why aren't they speaking out? >> hang on to the buck. she might put it off. meanwhile, prince harry, now you've done it. killing the taliban is fun?
3:02am
>> i like to think i'm [inaudible] >>steve: okay. that comment from the prince has the taliban terrorists firing back this morning. we're going to tell you what they said about harry. >>brian: taliban being irrational? so odd. everything you wish you never knew about fast food like the grill lines on those burgers are really paint. >>steve: get out of here! >>brian: the first down lines you see on television when you watch football games, they're real. "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: they're painted on too. >>gretchen: you would know about those painted burger lines from your days at benigan's. >>brian: i wasn't a cook. we had real grills. they were pressing down. i don't know what to believe anymore but it's
3:03am
another reason why you should think twice before going through the drive-through lanes. >>steve: a lot of people would like to have a grill right there. it is almost historically cold in portions of the northeast. right now in new york city it is about 10 degrees. >>brian: we might have to leave the planet. it's way too cold. >>steve: it prompted me to look up way too cold jokes. remember johnny carson used to do them. it's so cold now you have to open the fridge to heat the house. there are many that are borderline inappropriate. >>gretchen: let's go with the inappropriate ones. let's heat us up. >>steve: e-mail us it's so cold blank, friends at fox news.com. >>gretchen: it's so cold you're going to read a fox news alert. >>steve: we start with a fox news alert. in less than three hours skater hillary clinton -- secretary of state clinton will testify about what she knew regarding the terror attack in benghazi.
3:04am
>> today is the day. two hearings, we're expecting the first one on the senate side at 9:00 a.m. and on the house side at 2:00 p.m. these will be the first opportunities for americans to hear from the secretary of state at length since she took full responsibility for the benghazi attacks and the deaths of four americans. there are many remaining questions. ambassador steven's body was missing for nearly 11 hours and the u.s. military assets in europe were alerted but never utilized. yet the state department's accountability review board concluded last month kwoep quo there was not enough time for armed u.s. military assets to have made a difference." that is not what a congressman was told when he traveled to libya shortly after the attack. >> he told me he had proximity. he told me he had the capability. but he was not told to go fight for those people and save those people when the fighter was going -- when
3:05am
the fire fight was going on. >> also in question, fox news learned at least two eyewitnesses who participated in the rescue that night in benghazi were not offered up by their senior leaders at the c.i.a. and the state department. >> america has a lot of questions. what exactly was going on at the so-called consolate in benghazi? it was a special mission, okay. it was a special mission. what was its mission? >> fox news has also learned marines out of spain were asked by state department officials to change out of their marine uniforms before heading into libya. that delayed them by about 90 minutes. then there is the decision at the state department not to send a foreign emergency support team, which is the state department's on-call short-notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents. so many questions, and hillary clinton will be in the hot seat again starting at 9:00 a.m. on the senate side. >>steve: thank you very
3:06am
much. >>brian: they did think help was coming. they were laserring targets. they expected it to be coming. who told those guys that held out to hold out all those hours, that help was on the way. did anyone stop them? to me, hillary clinton is so skilled a politician and diplomat, i cannot see her penned in. this has been going on for four months she has had a chance to rehearse. >>gretchen: can she say she takes the fifth? >>steve: she could but she wants to be president of the united states. very cagey. she's going to be the last person to testify about this regarding this topic. she can line her testimony up with everything everybody else says. it will be interesting to see if we finally figure out and hear from those witnesses who were there, department of state employees who we haven't heard from so far. >>gretchen: it's so cold out, she'll be in the hot seat. here's a developing story. it's the biggest fire -- speaking of heat -- chicago has seen in years. nearly 200 fire fighters battling this massive warehouse fire in ten
3:07am
degree temperatures. part of the building collapse. it is a total loss. the building next door also caught fire. at one point there was concern chemicals inside could explode but fire fighters were able to keep that from happening. one fire fighter was hurt fighting the flames. >> late last night a magnitude 3.0 earthquake waking up hundreds of people. this was in irving, texas. the epi center 3 and a half miles east of dallas/fort worth airport. last september two small quakes shook the same area. >> one of al qaeda's top leaders dead for the third time? he reportedly died after being injured in a u.s. airstrike. he's suspected in the deadly bombing at the u.s. embassy in yemen in 2009. in 2012 yemini news
3:08am
reported he was killed in a drone strike. the voice behind the charlie brown character behind bars this morning. >> i never succeeded at anything my whole life. >> charlie brown, it's true. i recognize your frailties, your weaknesses. >>gretchen: peter robins faces charges including stalking and making a death threat. the 56-year-old was picked up at one of the largest border crossings between san diego and tijuana. a background check showed a warrant out for his arrest. >>steve: with that voice, he's going to be a target in there. go get charlie brown. i heard him. cell 6. >>gretchen: three-fifths he's not linus with the blanket. >>steve: the house of representatives is going to vote on h.r. 325. what is that? well, essentially what it does, it is going to suspend the debt limit.
3:09am
say treasury you can spend what you need for the next couple of months. that is what it is right at this second. but what's going to happen is -- and this is a big "but." both houses, both chambers of the u.s. congress have got to agree on a budget. and that is a big but. the last time the u.s. senate did it was in 2009. if they don't do it, nobody gets paid on capitol hill. >>gretchen: to put it in technological terms, the senate has not passed a budget since before the ipad was created. it's one way to look at it. 2009, the spa*eud wasn't around - the ipad wasn't around. bieber fever, first album released in 2009. and insta gram didn't exist either. house republicans passed two budgets since that time but the senate controlled by the democrats have not passed a budget. the president tried to send over a budget but he got zero votes on his particular budget. there is also another caveat though to extending
3:10am
this through may 18. if they don't do the budget by april 15, i believe, they will withhold pay for members of congress. that may be in violation of the 27th amendment to the constitution. as you can see, it gets very dicey here as to whether or not that will actually happen but it might incentivize some of these folks to get something done. >>brian: it is encouraging too that the white house got a proposal from the republican-controlled house and said i'll go with it. i've never seen that since president obama took over. i don't think they agreed on anything. at least they got a three-month delay. >>steve: plus the senate democrats are talking about we should come up with something. this could be a game changer. >>brian: let's talk about afghanistan. now that he's out of afghanistan, prince harry in fatigues talked about his stay there, what he was doing during that time. he also even talked about what he was doing in las vegas and was disappointed with himself but also privacy is privacy.
3:11am
-- you're right, you glue up in england. more of steve's bioon wikipedia. >>gretchen: that's what happens when you get interrupted. >>steve: i know so much about you. >>brian: prince harry left afghanistan on monday, which meant it was okay for the british press to start writing some of the interviews that they had accrued with him. and so here's a snippet of harry himself, the prince, describing what he did during his four months in afghanistan. >> take a life to save a life. [inaudible] it's people trying to [inaudible] a joy for me.
3:12am
[inaudible] >>brian: he says you kill one of them, you save another life. what he said -- >>gretchen: i can't understand it. >>brian: he said i'm good with xbox and it's like the same things. i'm very good with my thumbs. the taliban got word of it. listen to this. get this, to describe the war in afghanistan as a game demeans anyone especially a prince who is supposed to be made of better things. it shows they are unfamiliar with the situation and shows why they are losing. it's not a game. it is very, very real. >>steve: that same taliban spokesman went on to say that prince harry must have mental problems talking like that. >>brian: right. the taliban are so balanced, that has got to strike a blow. >>gretchen: why do we care what the taliban? >>brian: it matters. we're still fighting over there. what about the fact we're using karaoke technology to
3:13am
highlight my cadence -- >>gretchen: i like the fact that the prince told it like it is. he said hey, this is war. this is what happens. this is what i've done. you've got to give him some credit, number one, for serving in the military. but, number two, for telling this is what war is all about. >>steve: but he compared it to a video game. that was the issue. talking about killing people, it was like xbox. >>brian: what about this? how about finding out you're more expendable than your brother. your brother can't go. it's like you can go. we can afford to lose you. but can't afford to send your brother. >>gretchen: his brother can go. >>brian: not like this. his brother can't walk against traffic. >>gretchen: it's tough to figure out british royalty, isn't it? good thing we're in america. coming up, no more red pens. apparently the pens teachers use to grade tests make kids feel bad.
3:14am
really? >>brian: one of the most insane videos you'll see all day. taking out the biker. the whole thing caught on camera. and they had a microphone. meet the 5-passenger ford c-max hybrid.
3:15am
when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid.
3:16am
my name is taho and i'm a fish guy. it's a labor of love. it's a lot of labor and it's a lot of love. i don't need to go to the gym. my job is my workout. you're shoveling ice all day long. it's rough on the back. it's rough on the shoulders. i get muscle aches all over. advil® is great.
3:17am
pain and soreness is just out of the picture. [ male announcer ] make the switch. take action. take advil®. and for sinus congestion, now you can get advil® combined with a proven decongestant. breathe easier with advil® congestion relief. >>steve: after a number of scheduling conflicts and serious illness, outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton will testify today on capitol hill about the attack of a u.s. consolate in libya that led to the deaths of four americans. it's been four months since the attack and still families of those victims have not gotten answers. so will we get any today or will they get any today? let's ask ambassador john bolton. ambassador, what do you expect to happen today?
3:18am
and if you were asking questions, where would you focus? >> the way i would do it would be to ask very specific questions. i would not give secretary clinton a chance to filibuster about broad policy issues and skate past her personal responsibility. so there are three phases to this: what happened before september 11, what happened on the day of the attack, and what happened later with the mohammed video story. so, for example, before the attack, i would ask were you aware of the request for enhanced security from embassy tripoli? were you ware of the attacks on the consolate compound in benghazi, attacks on the british ambassador, the red cross's decision to withdraw? if she says "yes" to that, why didn't she react to provide enhanced security? and if she wasn't aware of it, what kind of responsibility does that show about her personnel in a very sensitive area? i'd repeat that kind of approach with respect to what happened on the day of
3:19am
the attack itself and then later. >>brian: ambassador, the former secretary, soon to be former secretary of state will personalize this, i imagine. and why not? ambassador stevens was a personal friend, a family friend. and he was serving at her request. it's going to be tough to get tough after that statement, isn't it? >> you know, franklin roosevelt along with the rest of the country had a pretty bad day on december 7, 1941. but the next day he went to congress and asked for a declaration of war. you want to be in a leadership position in senior positions in the united states government, you've got to stand up under difficult circumstances. susan rice wrote an op-ed for "the washington post" saying she was picked to go on to five sunday talk shows because mrs. clinton had a grueling week because of the attack. as i say, franklin roosevelt had a pretty grueling week too. but if you're not up to being able to handle the responsibilities, that says something too.
3:20am
>>brian: about whether you can be an effective president or not. al qaeda on the rise, on the run. we've decimated al qaeda. we've heard it all. in reality, they're all over north africa, coming back in iraq and their presence is seen in afghanistan. what is the message? >> well, i think one message is president obama doesn't get it. i was absolutely stunned in his inaugural address -- stunned to her him use a phrase associated with nevill chamberlain, peace in our time. i'm in london, so it's something people remember here. it is a phrase associated with the appeasement of the nazis in world war ii. and yet president obama used that. he said we were ending a decade of war. obviously the enemy didn't get the memo, as you say, in benghazi on september 11, in algeria with this horrible hostage taking that's just concluded, at least 37 dead, the french moving into military operations in mali, afghanistan very much at
3:21am
risk of falling to the taliban, and al qaeda coming back there. civil war in syria, disarray in yemen. the risk of terrorism, the global war on terrorism continues. it is not winding down. it might not be our preference but we didn't start the war and terrorists are not letting us finish it. >>brian: ignoring it is not the way to go. those things will be coming up again and maybe even today. ambassador john bolton we'll look forward to doing the after-action report tomorrow or later in the week. meanwhile straight ahead, what happens when a war veteran goes to an anti-gun forum? >> i went to war for my country. thank you. i went to war for your ability to have the first amendment. you stood up there and said today [inaudible] and have whatever opinion you want to have. >>brian: and he's not finished yet. a dolphin in trouble swims up to a driver for help.

3:27am
the fishing line wrapped around his fin and leading down his body. >>steve: the way you're describing it, you're making it sound like the dolphin saw you guys and came to ask the humans for help. >> it seemed that way to me. he came up, squeaked really loud and i turned around. it startled me. as he swam around, kind of went buy everyone there, sort of showing his left side. the second time he passed me, i noticed the fishing line. he had a problem. they're really smart animals. he probably knew he needed some help and he knew where to find people. >>steve: doesn't that amaze you? >> yeah. it is pretty amazing the dolphin was tricky enough to realize people could help him out. he knew where to find the people and he came right up to us. i'm just scissors and was able to cut the fishing line off. >>steve: were you startled when you heard that first squeak and flipper was behind you asking for help?
3:28am
>> he was about ten feet long and right in front of me. that shook me for a moment. >>steve: the fact that this wild animal is so calm when he swims right up to you like, okay, it's right there. take it out. >> absolutely. i put my hand out and he literally pushed against my hand. i took the hook off of his pectoral fin. i was able to get my scissors out and clip it off. he kept pushing into me to make it easier. he stayed with me, really calm. he was looking right at me. his eye was right in front of me. he knew what was going on. absolutely. >>steve: amazing. you successfully get the hook out, the line out. then what happened? where is the dolphin now? >> after i got the hook off and i snipped the line up by his mouth and kind of got it off of his fin, a little bit of fishing line
3:29am
still stuck in the injury, and i tried to pick it out of his fin pit, if you will, and he seemed okay with that. and then he just went up for a breath of air and he swam off, and i haven't seen him since. >>steve: i know you do about 150 of these manta expeditions a year. i know every time you're in the water from here on out you're going to be looking for that guy? >> looking and listening because he was really loud. he announced his presence. i'm just happy i was able to help the dolphin. animals have a tough time. there's all kinds of threats to them including fishing line. i'm happy that he was able to come over and we were able to help him out. >>steve: amazing story. keller laros joining us on-line from hawaii. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. come on out and see the manta rays. >>steve: love to. 28 minutes after the top of

3:35am
john boehner, as we know, totally his right. he's a smoker. maybe it's the one thing that john boehner and president obama agree on. >>brian: that john boehner should keep smoking? >>gretchen: no. that they enjoy a cigarette from time to time. >>steve: if she said to one of the 60 minutes reporters i was only allowed to run for president if i quit smoking. that's what my wife said. he didn't know after he won and was in the white house that he quit. i do believe he was chewing nicorette i read on-line. he was chewing gum during the parade. >>steve: it could have been bubblicious. >>brian: what was the gum you chewed and it shot a
3:36am
fluid into your mouth. >>steve: it had a crazy flavor. >>gretchen: brian's biggest pet peeve is people who chew gum. >>brian: the gum that goes squirt. freshen-up gum. >>gretchen: gosh, i needed to know that today. >>steve: we told you about this yesterday. the political director of cbs news -- remember cbs news, mainstream media -- that guy right there, he's suppose to be unbiased. his name is john dickerson. in addition to being the political director, he's also the chief political correspondent for a far-left blog called flake. before the president was reinaugurated, he came out with a column that said essentially he sounded a lot to many people like a democratic strategist and had advice for the president of the united
3:37am
states. he said going forward if you want to be a transformational president, you're going to have to destroy the g.o.p. and go for the throat. and that was awfully partisan, and a lot of people said, look, should you be giving advice to the president to forward his agenda. that's where we were wrong. evidently we misunderstood the gist of his remarks. that's what he says. >>gretchen: he's rewritten an article. i have to say that i understand some of his points of view now. he says it was analysis, not advice. here is what he is saying if you look deeper into the facts. he said it's become clear to him that the president is not up for compromising with republicans and that he's written off working with republicans, so given these facts, there's only one logical conclusion for a president who wants to transform american politics. he must take on republicans aggressively. that is his point of view.
3:38am
>>brian: pulverize. >>gretchen: he also said some people saw his argument for one-party power, which is impossible since actually what he was positing torgt him in this -- according to him in this article was it would be the first step in leading to the rebirth of the g.o.p. as the majority party. and he said that a lot of his family and friends were stunned to find out that people were offended by this column because in fact they know him as otherwise and what he was actually trying to say. so you have to read the articles and come up with your own conclusions. but that's -- i have to agree with him on certain points. some people have said that president obama's legacy was going to be all about coming to the middle. and what he's saying is what i tend to agree with, that if you listen to the inaugural speech, it's not about coming to the middle. >>steve: here's the problem i have with what he is suggesting. remember, he's supposed to be nonpartisan, unbiased but instead he does appear
3:39am
to be offering the president some advice. he says, mr. president, you've got to aggressively take on the republican party in your second term. well, why? that's not what bill clinton did. that's not what george w. bush did. that's not what ronald reagan did. if you look at the exit polls after the november election, the people of the united states said we want both parties, all sides to get together and get something done in washington, d.c. our point was how can this guy who is working as an unbiased political director for cbs -- i mean, you tune to cbs, you want it unpolitical; right? right down the middle. how can he work for this far-left blog as well as their chief correspondent. john, pick a lane. which is it? down the middle or way left? >>brian: it looks like he was giving the president advice and he has a point of view. and i thought he was supposed to not have one. meanwhile, 22 minutes before the hour. >>steve: the coldest
3:40am
temperatures of the season bearing down on the midwest and northeast. the coldest place in the country yesterday was minnesota, 36 below at one spot. maria molina is tracking the weather. maria, i hear it is going to warm up in minnesota, up into the 20's in the next couple of days but it is bitterly cold. >>maria: still below average for many people across minnesota. even though it will be a bit milder across minnesota, parts of dakotas, still dangerously cold winter temperatures. that is actually a sign that we have an approaching storm system that is going to be bringing in snow across places into the midwest and northeast. that tends to happen, when you go into the strong cold front you get that warm front and that moderates temperatures ahead of it. another frigid day across the mideast and portions of the midwest. minneapolis, 8 degree for your high temperature. you're supposed to be in the mid 20's this time of year. the forecast for the next koufrpl days, minneapolis,
3:41am

she claimed full responsibility for what happened in benghazi. but there are so many more questions to ask and to get answered at this point in time. as our jennifer griffin reported last night, ambassador stevens' body was missing for 11 hours and the u.s. military assets in europe were alerted, they were never utilized. yet the state department's accountability review board concluded last month, and i'm quoting here, there simply was not enough time for armed u.s. military assets to have made a difference. that's not what congressman jason chats was told. listen up to congressman chaffetz. >> he was not told to go fight for those people and save those people when the fire fight was going on. >> in addition to that, fox news learned that two eyewitnesses to the attack who participated in
4:05am
the rescue were not offered up by their superiors at either the c.i.a. or state department to offer their perspective to the accountability review board. shear congressman again. >> state department employees that were injured in that fire fight, they should be interviewed and talked to by members of congress. so far that hasn't happened. >> in addition to that, we have also learned that marines out of spain, who were responding to the attack to secure the scene and gather up the initial pieces of evidence were asked by the state department to get off the plane that they were on and change out of their united states marine corps uniforms. that delayed their appearance in benghazi by about 90 minutes, we are told, and by that time, a lot of the evidence had been removed. so these are some of the questions that congressmen and senators will be asking today. all eyes will be on the senate foreign relations committee. back to you now. >> steve: we thank you very much. brian, thousand? it was so cold, gretchen and

4:08am
house. the inauguration committee or beyonce herself. those are your headlines. what sparked this whole thing was that she had tweeted out photos apparently from the day before when she was actually in a recording studio, which we have found out now is protocol for people who are going to perform at the inauguration. they do all record tracks because as four years ago what happened, the cellist and violinist could not perform because as a violinist, we all know when that's too cold, your fingers can't do it. that's why they did that. >> brian: he hand faked. >> steve: but so did the marine band during her number. she was the only one who didn't actually practice with the marine band. it all got started when the band was asked about the performance. was that synchronized. they put out this statement, quote, we all know beyonce can sing. we all know the marine corps band can play. we don't know why she decided to
4:09am
go with the prerecord music at the last minute. then later in the day, somebody else, captain flanigan, came out and said, you know with a? we don't know for sure whether or not beyonce sang. we just know that the marine corps band didn't play. her microphone may have been open. she may have actually sung. >> brian: here is the thing, no one in the band was in position to see if she was singing, but they know they were fake. so they're trying to be diplomatic and fall on the sword. but essentially -- >> gretchen: they didn't play either. >> brian: that's true. the problem is, it was so unbelievably good, everyone singled it out, like james taylor, kelly clarkson sounded fine. she sounded unbelievable. that makes you want to probe into what went into the preparation. did she actually go not so-called zone and could she ever hit that mark again. then you find this out. it remind me of super bowl 25,

4:11am
it's sort harder than doing in a studio, they'll say, take it from the top. that's when they say in studio. >> gretchen: then if she would have flubbed, we'd all be sitting here saying, she sang it live and she flubbed and she should have record. >> steve: they could say look, of it live, it was cold and outside. there are a lot of people who are disappointed. she was such a good fakeer. when you think about it, the entire day was a fake. >> brian: what do you mean? >> steve: because the president of the united states was actual lea sworn in the day before. it was all for show anyway. >> brian: i just found out manti te'o's girlfriend wasn't real. so this is one thing after another hitting us. >> gretchen: i don't know. this doesn't really bother me personally. >> steve: what do you think? e-mail us. it sounds like the woman who wound up costing general petraeus his job at the c.i.a.,

paula broadwell h an affair. it started with jill kelly had started receiving e-mail from somebody that were so ambiguous, yet threatening, she didn't know if they were from a man or woman. >> brian: right. she said that she felt threatened and actually scared for her life. that's why she reached out to a friend in the f.b.i and she's telling her side of the story. she didn't want to hurt anybody. general allen, although the investigation delayed his promotion, i do think it's important and caused for embarrassment and he's been cleared. all the earlier reports about hundreds of e-mail are not true. >> gretchen: but this is a case of what happens when a story goes out there and then does a retraction get as much attention as the actual story? i mean, remember, it was said 30,000 e-mails. people were scratching their heads like and they're make accusations saying how could he manage afghanistan and it turns out he wasn't. can you regain your reputation
4:13am
after something like that? i think it's a shame that this happened to this great general who apparently actually was doing his job in afghanistan. >> steve: he was. and the inspector general said they have cleared him of any wrongdoing. however, they were able to figure out that it was this ball la broadwell sending the e-mail she was having the affair with david petraeus and the whole thing got started and there you can see paula broadwell. started with the e-mail sent to jill kelly that actually jill kelly's husband got on their shared yahoo account on his iphone. he goes, honey, what's this? and that's how it all started. >> brian: wow. paula broadwell, very good shape, by the way. >> steve: indeed. >> brian: coming up, he was once in charge of enforcing the strictest gun laws in the country. so why does our next guest say the president's gun plan might fuelly help criminals? >> steve: that's right. then does this scene look familiar? is this victoria secret super model trying out to be the next

4:19am
at the inauguration the day before. he said, regarding gun violence, we might have to give up some of our freedoms to achieve a calm society. what do you think about we might have to give up some freedoms? >> that's terrible. president obama says, even if we save one life then it's worth taking some measures, i don't agree that because there are tens of thousands of people, more, who voluntarily have given up their lives already so we can have these freedoms. we're getting into a dangerous mental knit this society where it doesn't matter if someone commit add act or there is a result. we're going to presume if someone has a gun, that they have the intent to commit an act of gun violence and therefore we have to take guns away. that's a concept that is fundamentally at war with the constitution of the united states. >> steve: the people i know with guns have the guns to protect themselves from the bad guys. whether the bad guys have guns or knives or clubs, it's self-protection. >> when you look at who is committing the shootings, whether they're drive-by
4:20am
shootings or some of these school shooting, none of these are people who belong to the nra. not people who are major firearm owners. they're people who are either evil or they're sick and they come across guns by getting them from someone else, usually illegally. they're going to get them anyway. >> steve: exit question, what should be done, if anything? >> i think we need to try to step up law enforcement and enforce the regulations and laws we already have on the books, put more officers on the street. >> steve: interesting stuff. we thank you very much. former dc criminal prosecutor, thank you for joining us live. >> thank you. >> steve: all right. what do you think about that? e-mail us. meanwhile a stunning new report could change the way you eat. some popular foods not as advertised like your tea is really made from grass? lawn grass. that's what it says in the teleprompter, folks. so it's got to be true. then, parents, before you do your taxes, you're going to want to hear this.

little tricky. are you the head of the household for over six months? are you the primary care giver and incurring most of the cost. in which case, this child is your dependent. >> gretchen: so only one much you can claim this. >> right. >> gretchen: tax blessing number two, the child tax credit. what's that? >> so this one, you get $1,000 credit per child. gone are the days that you're passing down the money so freely to the kids. that is taxed so heavily. we know that for a fact. so let's go with this one. get in there and try and get that $1,000 tax credit. there is no forms, nothing. just put in for it. if you have more than one child, orgeat form, the 8812. it will compute that one. this one you could even get a refund if you're pretty free and clear of taxes. >> gretchen: i take advantage of this next one. tax blessing number 3, daycare cost. you can put aside tax free money. is that what you're talking about here? >> you get for daycare, we know
4:27am

5:03am
explaining. that's what she's going to do starting at 9:00 o'clock. then doug mckelway, she's got another appointment, first with the senate and then the house this afternoon. right? >> that's right. the senate foreign relations gets underway at 9 and house foreign affairs committee will begin their hearing at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon. really our first chance to hear from the secretary of state in any depth since in the days immediately after the attack. she said that the entire debauchle was her responsibility and since her earlier testimony was delayed by her bout with the flu, the concussion and the subsequent blood clot in her head. early today on fox news, ambassador john bolton suggested how he would go about the questioning process of the secretary of state. listen up. >> the way i would do it would be to ask very specific questions. i would not give secretary clinton the chance to filibuster about broad policy issues and skate past her personal responsibility. so there are three phases to this. what happened before september 11, what happened on
5:04am
the day of the attack and what happened later with the mohammed video story. >> the accountability review board found in its conclusion of their investigation, quoting now, there was simply not enough time for armed u.s. military assets to have made a difference. but that is in stark contrast to what commander general hand told congressman jason chaffetz. >> he told me the proximity. he told me he had the proximity. but he was not told to go fight for those people and save those people when the fire fight was going on. >> fox news also learned that u.s. marines who were stationed in spain and who were dispatched to go secure the scene of the benghazi attack were actually told to step off the airplane that they were on and remove their u.s. marine uniforms. that delayed their departure by about 90 minutes and a lot of the evidence was gone at the scene when they finally made it there. a couple of sub plots to watch out for.

senator john kerry, soon to be secretary of state, he could be fascinating to see how he approaches this hearing. will he be protective of the department he is soon to inherit? will he be protective of his predecessor and look for more aggressive questioning on the house side. they want to know how far up the chain of command this went. back to you. >> brian: comprehensive report, if i was to pick a favorite sound bite, it would be your first one. i thought it was right to the point. i thought the questions were right on. >> steve: the interview of the guy did you? >> oh, yeah. just a coincidence. >> i didn't know that. way to go, brian. >> brian: you owe me four bucks. >> gretchen: all right. now your other headlines. another developing story for you this morning. we just learned that manti te'o is now admitting he lied about his fake girlfriend and her death. he tells katie couric the lie was just a brief one. >> this girl who i committed myself with died on

5:09am
i got some like cereal in the green room. [ laughter ] let's talk about cbs's reporter that wrote that column. he's supposed to be their director of politics. the way he wrote this column, it came off as if he was giving the president advice because he was giving the president advice, saying he's got to pulverize the republican party. he's got to essentially take no prisoners. my words, not his, if he wants to get anything passed with his plans. we were stunned by this and pointed it out. so he has kind of retracted and explained himself. >> steve: he's actually doubled down. keep in mind, he's the political director at cbs news. at the same time, he's also the chief correspondent for politics for a very far left blog called slate.com. so yesterday he went to slate, after we complained about it. how does this guy keep both jobs because he's supposed to be
5:10am
nonpartisan, but he responded with an item, a blog yesterday that said they hate me. they really hate me. that was the title of it. he goes on to say, the president is ambitious, has picked politically controversial goals, has little time to operate before he is a lame duck president and has written off working with republicans, given these facts, where the only one logical conclusion for a president who wants to transform american politics. it was analysis. it was not advice. >> gretchen: he actually says his whole point of his article was not about one party power. but that he believed it would actually, since the president didn't seem to be in any kind of a compromising mood and a lot of people saw that in the inaugural address, that his point was that republicans actually could use this as a way to win the midterm elections and to actually take overt power coming up in the next couple of years.
5:11am
>> brian: that's what he says. >> gretchen: he said it was analysis. not advice. >> steve: he also said, hey, why are you picking on me? jody captor of the "new york times" wrote a similar item. jody cantor is a writer and a reporter. she's not the political director for a main stream media outlet. for a lot of people, it just looks like you're not just being a pundit burks strategist on behalf of the white house. >> brian: you get your test back in school, remember this for kids, they're living this. on it in red, everything you got wrong. even if it's one thing. minus 4. spelling. minus 2, minus 12 in chris chulo's case. >> steve: how did you feel when you picked up the paper and saw all the red marks? >> brian: not good about myself. i couldn't eat lunch! >> gretchen: what if the red pen said 100%? >> brian: that never happened. have you met me? >> gretchen: welcome to the pc society because apparently red pens, hate to tell if you you're manufacturing red pens out there, or maybe even dresses, it
5:12am
will come to makes kids upset. >> steve: psychologists at the university of colorado, they did a study and they realized that red ink upsets certain children. they feel like they are being shouted at. instead, they suggest lay off the red ink. even though it's easier to see and use blue. >> gretchen: shouldn't we be spending our education dollars on something else? >> steve: it's good to know that it bothers some kids. maybe they can come up with plan b. >> gretchen: wait a minute. isn't the point, kids are supposed to be bothered when they get things wrong. that's the whole point of going to school, that maybe when you see you get a problem wrong, that you work harder next time, at least that's what i thought. >> brian: how many times have you blamed the pen for wrong answers? i blame my number 2 pencil for not getting a perfect mark on my s.a.t.'s. you gave me the wrong pencil, thanks. >> steve: you can't make this up department, going forward, there is a possibility that in the
5:13am
district of columbia, which houses the federal government, high school students may actually be able to graduate from high school without taking a class in government. that's right. they'll have to rely on things they learned in grade school and middle school. instead, they're talking about more p.e., more art, more music. they'll have no idea how the federal government runs in high school. >> gretchen: why can't they do all of them? they always cut music first. >> brian: talk to the teacher. >> gretchen: yeah, but there is got to be a way to fit in all this stuff. >> brian: a lot of people wrote me that say i do play modern music in my fourth and fifth grade band. >> gretchen: they were honoring teachers who included that. >> brian: a lot of people were writing me. answering a loft band e-mails yesterday. meanwhile, this is the best news of the day. >> gretchen: congratulations to lee and michael. look at that. she's a producer on "fox & friends." she's our number one booker.

>> gretchen: 17 minutes after the top of the hour. decision day for the debt ceiling as house republicans prepare to vote on a short-term raise to the nation's borrowing limit. also on the line, a measure that would force the senate to pass a budget, or give up their paychecks. joining me is house majority whip kevin mccarthy. good morning to you. >> good morning, thank you for having me. >> gretchen: have you ever thought about being a football coach because i understand that in front of the gop conference yesterday, you got a standing ovation for your locker room half time speech. what did you do? >> well, it was talking about where we want to take this country. we want to put us on a path to a balanced budget. we want to move this country for greater opportunity. you can have a place where there is not 13 million people unemployed. i think you saw a team effort
5:19am
that we're united behind making sure no budget, no pay, moves through this house and gets the senate once and for all to do a budget. how can you ever plan for the future if the number one thing you're supposed to do as elected official, they can't do? >> gretchen: it's interesting because republicans have taken a hit for sort of being the road blockers. when you actually look at some of the facts as you just point out, the senate has not passed a budget since 2009. you also brought up some very interesting facts, that that was before the ipad was created. the chevy volt, the bieber fever, and even instagram. so it's been quite some time since it actually done their work. now, you want also to incorporate into that that they don't get paid unless they do it. how is that going to go? >> what works, you got the 27th amendment. their paycheck will go into an escrow. look, elected officials should pass a budget. how is it the president give his speech about what he wants america to invest in and ask
5:20am
american public to give him more money without even telling them where they're going to go or how they're going to balance the budget? they talk about being able to cut government, but never show you where they're going to go. so having a budget is fundamental. this bill will move april 15, is the deadline where both house also pass a budget. we give them a little more time, trying to be fair in the process into may, pass a budget. if you can't do your job, which you haven't been able to do in almost four years, you shouldn't be paid. it's the same should be held for us. if we can not pass a budget in the house, we should not be paid. >> gretchen: it's interesting, the president said he will not hold up what you plan to try and pass today. but you may actually get some blow back from other republicans who believe that by extending the debt limit by three months, that you're actually caving. how do you respond to that? >> no, because when you look at what's transforming, in march 1, it's what's going to happen is called sequestration. those were the cuts that we put
5:21am
in place in the last debt ceiling. do you know this congress is only going to be the third congress since world war ii that cut discretionary spending year over year over year, even in all those terms and newt gingrich during that, they weren't able to do it as many times as we will. we have moved discretionary spending down. we want to see tax reform to expand the economy and go further. this is a succession. that will go into effect. then you have a cr that will go at the end of the month. that is another movement and an opportunity. >> gretchen: all right. congressman kevin mccarthy, nominate you for football coach potentially with your standing ovation. thanks for your time today. >> thanks for having me. >> gretchen: one of the most insane videos you're going to see all day long. (scream) >> gretchen: plane nearly taking out that biker. you might ask yourself what is the biker doing on the tarmac?

[ laughter ] listening. >> gretchen: the interesting thing is, is it true that you wanted to portray women in this western as a little bit stronger characters than sometimes they've been portrayed if other westerns? >> i always like to. you got to think about it, for a woman to survive at that time was not easy. these women weren't -- many times, not just westerns, but a lot of movies painted one dimensional picture of women and you want to dig out rest of the stuff and show them three

you take a life, you save a life. you take a british life, you take out a taliban. >> gretchen: what's wrong with that? >> brian: he says he's good at it because of he plays x box. >> steve: he says essentially that killing taliban members was like playing a video game. the taliban, through a spokesperson, said, quote, to describe the war in afghanistan is a game demeans anyone, especially a prince who is supposed to be made of better things. it shows they are unfamiliar with the situation and shows why they are losing. it's not a game. it's very, very real. >> gretchen: i think it's admirable that a prince is actually fighting the war in afghanistan. >> brian: it is. >> gretchen: he could be sitting back spending his wealth. but he's over there putting himself in danger and by the way, he should do celebrity jeopardy because with all that dexterity he has with his fingers, he would be very good at the buzzer. >> brian: very good point. and he could be hanging out in las vegas at strip club. oh, he did that. did he: did he seem like the
